Benalla's UnitingCare will hold its annual Pancake Day next Tuesday.February 7, 2013 4:58am
Pancake Day is the annual fundraising event that sees members of the community get together and flip pancakes to raise money for people doing it tough.
This year, UnitingCare is pleased to have celebrity chef and patissier extraordinaire Adriano Zumbo on board again as the 2013 Pancake Day ambassador.
‘‘I am so pleased to be the ambassador for Pancake Day again in 2013,’’ Mr Zumbo said.
‘‘UnitingCare does great work with families in the community and everyone should get involved to help raise money for families in need.’’
UnitingCare agencies across Victoria and Tasmania provide a variety of vital services that assist people across all sections of the community.
UnitingCare director Charles Gibson said Pancake Day fundraising, this year, would focus on supporting families.
‘‘Pancake Day is a fantastic opportunity to bring people together for a fun day to enjoy a hot pancake and support UnitingCare and its work with assisting families,’’ Mr Gibson said.
‘‘Many families, through no fault of their own, find themselves in crisis situations as a result of various issues, which can range from homelessness and financial hardship, illness to abusive relationships.
‘‘We are asking for people to participate in Pancake Day and help us support families through the countless services that our UnitingCare agencies provide,’’ Mr Gibson said.
During the years Pancake Day events have been held in places as diverse as churches, kindergartens, schools, community groups and workplaces.
Locally, this year Pancake Day will be organised by Benalla UCAF Afternoon and Evening Group.
‘‘Pancake Day is always stacks of fun and a wonderful opportunity to get people in the community together to support families in their own neighbourhood,’’ UnitingCare Pancake Day local coordinator Barbara Sutherland said.
By holding a Pancake Day event, your efforts will not only be fun, but will go towards helping the extensive community care work of UnitingCare and its integrated work with families.
